re-partitioning



Hi folks,

I know that we have beat this topic up for a while. I just want to clarify an issue. I've just gotten a new HDD and want to take my RH 6.2 installation and

 tar the partitions onto the new drive (easy)
 delete existing partitions from old drive, (also easy)
 * re-partition old drive
 * replace the files onto the new partitions.

While I am thinking this through, it occurred to me that once I delete the existing partitions I won't have tar or fdisk available anymore to work with. I've created a boot disk (mkbootdisk) and verified that it will boot the system. Will cp'ing the files "tar" and "fdisk" to the bootdisk be enough to do the work, or do I need some libraries as well? Any other files that I might be missing?

Thanks,
